Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of Internet users much more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms which handle the info in massive chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For instance, in case a user has to fill a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the information in the first field the second it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it certainly does make a difference if a large number of individuals are visiting a website at the same time. A few examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dining booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that support fast real-time communication.
Node.js in Shared Website Hosting
Since Node.js is present on our leading-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it to your hosting account and to use it for any web-based application that you have, regardless of which shared website hosting plan you have chosen during the signup process. The Upgrades section in the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with all shared web hosting accounts, will allow you to pick the number of instances that you want to run – this is the number of the web apps that will use Node.js. A couple of minutes later, you can indicate the path to the app, i.e. the location of the .js file in your website hosting account, as well as to pick the IP to receive access to that file – a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. In the new Node.js section that will appear in the Control Panel, you will be able to restart an instance or to remove it in case you no longer require it. You’ll also get access to the output code with only a single click of the mouse.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server package through our company, you’ll be able to take advantage of the full potential of Node.js with any web app that you host on our cloud hosting platform, because it’s included with each and every plan offered by our company. You can indicate the number of instances, or apps that can use Node.js, through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel with which you can manage your account. The only things that you’ll have do after that will be to indicate the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP in case you have one, or any of the server’s shared IP addresses. Our system will also specify a random port number. Using the Node.js controls inside Hepsia, you are able to see a given app’s output or to start/restart/deactivate any of the instances that you have added.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All Linux VPS servers that are ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can take full advantage of this event-driven platform for each Internet application that you run on the Virtual Private Server. Since we have not put any limitation as to the number of instances that you can use, you can make full use of the power of our virtual servers and mix it with the full capacity of Node.js. The configuration is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with, point ‘n’ click graphical interface, so even if you aren’t tech-savvy, you will not come across any impediments while using the platform. You will simply need to insert the path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What’s more, our system will also set a port to access the file and you will be able to see it in the corresponding section in the Control Panel. With just one click, you can check the output of your applications and to discontinue or to restart any Node.js instance hosted on the VPS.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
Node.js comes with all dedicated service that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make full use of the platform once your dedicated server is up and running. Since Hepsia is quite simple to use, you’ll be able to make that without coming across any predicaments, even if you have not used Node.js before, as everything that you’ll need to do on your end is insert the path to the .js file that will use the platform and the IP address that will be used to access the file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other web sites. You can activate as many instances as you want on our amazingly powerful servers and each instance can be managed separately – you’ll be able to start, to restart or to discontinue it, to check the output of the application that uses it, etc. You can do this via the intuitive, point & click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can make full use of the power of the Node.js platform with no effort.
